17/18 September Rankings: 126-150

126) Patty Mills (PG) – The Australian has always been a very intriguing player. He has always posted very good per minute numbers, but hasn’t taken off like his per minutes numbers would suggest when given extended run. With Tony Parker out at least another four months, Mills will have his best opportunity yet to establish …

17/18 September Rankings: 101-125

101) Dennis Smith Jr. (PG) – Smith was dynamite in summer league and should be a serious contender for the rookie of the year award. He doesn’t have the long-term upside that Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball do, but he could be better as a rookie. He’s going to have a fairly large role for Mavericks. …

17/18 September Rankings: 76-100

76) Lonzo Ball (PG) – Ball’s rookie season is probably going to be a circus. Luke Walton wasn’t afraid to bench D’Angelo Russell and you can guess what’s going to happen if he does the same to Ball. The off-court stuff could be messy, but the on-court stuff shouldn’t be. Ball has great vision and great …

17/18 September Rankings: 51-75

51) Clint Capela (PF/C) – Capela has early-round upside if he’s placed in the right build. He was only a top-45 player in the punt FT% build last season, but provided borderline second-round value if you were punting points as well. Capela is only 23 and is entering his third year as a full-time player. We …

17/18 September Rankings: 26-50

Note: Where I rank a player is not necessarily where I’d draft that player. You’ll see me rank some players inside of the top-50 that you won’t need to draft inside of the top-50. The rankings are meant to show how valuable I think a player will be. For example, I’m not suggesting that you take …

17/18 September Rankings: 1-25

Welcome to Elite Fantasy Basketball 2017-2018! If you’re looking for analysis that cuts through the narratives and focuses on the numbers, you’ve come to right place. What I love most about fantasy basketball is that it’s not just about picking the best players. It’s far deeper than that. Similar to real basketball, fantasy basketball is …

January Rankings: #101-150

101) Pau Gasol 102) Marvin Williams 103) Jon Leuer 104) Devin Booker – Booker posts some flashy scoring numbers, but until the rest of his game catches up to his scoring ability, he’s no more than a low-end asset. Over the last two weeks, he’s averaging 25.9 PPG and 2.4 3PG, but due to his …

January Rankings: #51-100

51) Joel Embiid – The Process would be much higher on this list if the Sixers upped his minutes cap and played him on both ends of back-to-back sets. The minutes cap isn’t a major issue due to Embiid’s top-25 per minute production, but Embiid not yet playing in back-to-back games makes him a risky …

January Rankings: Top 50

We’ve now reached the mid-point of the season and are now more than halfway through the fantasy schedule. If you’re cruising toward a bye, now would be a good time to start considering stashing players who may be underachieving, but who have the potential to be difference makers come playoff time. Regardless of where you are …
